Snapdragon and LG have collaborated to introduce the Snapdragon Wear 2100 specially developed for smart wearables. The platform is versatile enough catering to mobile, fashion and sports demographics.
Currently, most Android watches are powered by the Snapdragon 400 which was originally designed for mobile devices. In comparison, the 2100 SoC (System on Chip) is 30% smaller, uses 25% lesser power and has a new LTE modem with integrated GNSS. Also included is an ultra low power sensor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. These improvements will lead to slimmer devices with a longer lasting battery life.
The technology is expected to appear soon in next generation smart watches, bands, eyewear and headset segments.
